Struggling Between Whether You Should Sleep In or Hit the Gym? Find Out Which One Is Best for You

October 06, 2015 2 min read

So it's the fourth day in a row you've attempted to get out of bed early in the morning and hit the gym before work, but somehow you just can't find the motivation. Last week you were up and at 'em before 6am. But does it really matter? find out whether you should sleep in or hit the gym The case for hitting the snooze button is obviously the importance of sleep in general. We need it to fuel through the day, so skimping on it for anything is not a good idea. “If you want all-around rock star health, then sleeping and working out are both important,” says Rob Sulaver, sports nutritionist and trainer at Bandana Training. As for hitting it early, there are definitely benefits to early morning exercise routines, like getting those endorphins to help set the tone for a feel-good, low-stress day. Early-bird workouts also lead to better sleep research notes. Just make sure you're not sacrificing valuable sleep. Natalie Dautovich, Ph.D., a National Sleep Foundation environmental says, “If you find you feel fatigued during the day, that it’s difficult to concentrate or hard to wake up, then you may need to reconsider your sleep schedule.” Not sure which one is right for you? Ask yourself the following questions:
  1. Am I actually going to shut off my alarm and sleep in?
  2. Can I workout any other time during the day?
  3. Can I make up the workout later in the week, possibly by doing a two-a-day?
If you find yourself answering "no" to all of the above, then you ought to get up early and hit it! Otherwise, make time for that much-needed sleep and get your workout in at another time in the day.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
